We had two birding sessions guided by Niall. He is a fantastic guide and we enjoyed the specials of the Kgomo Kgomo and Zaagkuildrift road. These included cracking views of Marsh & Sedge Warblers, Allen's Gallinule, Lesser Moorhen, Dwarf & Little Bittern and Finfoot. It was only due to the participants lack of perseverance that we did not see the numerous calling River Warblers and Common Whitethroat. Niall, and the other guides, from Bustards Birding Tours are very familiar with this area and the whole of Southern Africa. I can highly recommend this company.

We did a 2 week birding tour with Niall targeting the South Africa endemic and regional speciality birds. The tour was very successful with a large number of great birds seen. Niall was a great tour leader who was good company and worked hard to get us the birds. Niall was very knowledgeable about the birds and bird calls and the tour was well organised. When I come back to SA I would use Niall as a birding guide again.

I enjoyed a fantastic day birding outside of Pretoria with Bustards birding in February. An early a.m. out was rewarded with over 120 species by early afternoon. His mastery of tricky groups like swallows and birds of prey ensured I got to know exactly what we saw. His sharp eyes caught a number I never even would have seen. Whether you're looking for a specific species or just an overall pleasant day, he'll make sure you have a good time. I've visited parks in a dozen countries across Africa and his expertise stands above others. Hope I'll get a chance to do a multiday trip and can't recommended him enough. Plus, if you dont have a book for southern Africa, you can get a signed copy!

The trip was very well organised with routes planned to accommodate for target species and other endemics of the area. My own previous birding outings were taken into account to make sure that I got the most out of the area by seeing as many new species as possible! Niall was incredibly knowledgeable when it came to the birds in the area and was able to let me know what to look out for.

Done a couple of trips with Niall Perrins from Bustards Birding over the last year. Each time target species were found and photographed. Everything very well organised and flexible to our needs. Highly recommended. Looking forward to doing a Pelagic trip off the coast of Durban in the near future.
